Local Training Days

Medical Education local training days for trainee GPs and trainee psychiatrists in Surrey and North East Hampshire

Consultants, trainees and other grades are all active participants in our training programmes. 

The teaching sessions comprise of: 

  • Academic Seminar eg external speakers and case presentations covering a variety of topics
  •  Specialist Teaching Session (Journal Club) run by higher trainees or core trainees 
  • Balint group
